Facilities

As a Ph.D student at the University of Bucharest, several facilities are provided to you, including:

Institutional e-mail address

All ISDS doctoral students will receive upon their enrollments an institutional email address with one of the following terminations: name.surname@drd.unibuc.ro or name.surname@unibuc.ro.

These institutional email addresses will be issued a few weeks after registrations and students have to validate their accounts. The details will be sent on the email that the student provided while submitting his/her Ph.D. application.

If you encounter difficulties with this process, the University will provide logistic support, you just have to signal these problems on our official email address (isds@unibuc.ro).

These institutional addresses are recommended for future communication regarding the administrative work, for online courses and they can be used for gaining access to scientific databases.
